My stove vent was over the window. I have a big skylight toward the front that I could get off easily from the inside. The back by the rib was my vent. It was a mess.

Explore my google plus albums - this one shows you my roof

Moving Along

Well I've had a couple long weekends to get some more work done.

Photo 1 - Reinstalled Stove cover. Had to take a ball peen hammer to reshape due to a couple of dents.
Used 10-32 SS machine screws with nylock nuts.
By the way, #10 machine screws fit nice and tight in a #21 drill hole.

Photo 2,3 & 4 - Completed the making of my refer collar, added aluminum screen on top. I used 5/32" buck rivets to hold frame to shell. Then I cut a thin strip of .032 to hold the screen to the top of shell using 1/8" pop rivets.
Now I just need to buck to trailer. More surface prep on inside is required considering the black Goo from the factory.

Photo 5 - New vent caps polished up. I have them riveted on with 5/32" buck rivets and Trempro 635. Will show picture in next post.

Need to finish up second vent ( I only got one before it got dark), shoot on refer collar, and Cover..... still working on what to do with Refer collar cover.

Then install my new Fantastic vent in the new patch. I'll be using 12-24 SS machine screws and nylock nuts. #12 oval heads seem to fit just right in the existing countersunk holes in the Fantastic Vent.

After that I can polish and clean up old vent, then seal and reinstall lid and the roof SHOULD be done.... for now..... until I have to clean up and seal next year..... and then maybe the year after that.... and the year after that and..........


Thanks for following,

TIMK

I just loaded copious amounts of detailed photos up on Google Plus. Hope that helps. https://plus.google.com/photos/11042...18450367428113

Just look through more of the albums for more.

Counter Height

It appeared that your counter was approx. 2-3" under your window thumbalinadj.
That gives me a good reference to start with. I'll probably be doing something in the neighborhood of 38". My counter in my house is 36", but I was hoping for 40" in the trailer. I'll have to cut the difference.
Now to find a fridge to fit in that area. Looking for something a little larger than 2 cu ft.

Any suggestions?

I'll go measure in the morning. I'm scared to shop for the appliances. Kegerators and composting toilets are hard to swallow the price of.

I raised my counter in the galley to set directly under the window. That way I could fit a SMEK stove on top of my fridge. I used a Norcold 3-way 2.7 cf model N300X. The opening requires 29.75 -29.88 inches high x 20.50 -20.64 inches wide x 21.38 inches deep.

That should work out great, thanks Becky.
It looks really inviting, and is the look I may end up with. Love the dark counter and floors with light cabinets.... just beautiful.
I've seen those aluminum floor register templates at the hardware store, like the pattern. Great Idea to incorporate those into the trailer.



Do you like the Norcold? I am on the fence about a Dometic RM2451.
Does the Norcold have an auto re-light if pilot goes out?

How do you vent for the stove? or do you care

Thanks

TIMK

Hi, I am so excited we finaly have the globetrotter here! Now the fun starts! But first, Where should I start? We replaced the axel and brakes along with tires! ( so we could transport safely! Little did we know that as soon as we got on the Hwy the porton of the underbelly fell partly Off leaving a cloud of rodant poop dust cloud behind!) So I intend to take everything out, redo the floors and was thinking of taking the interior walls down to replace the insulation. My question is what should I do first? Also how do you get the rivits out? I think I will need to redo all the electric and possible all plumbing. ANY Advice would be welcome!!

Hi Tim,

I like the Norcold. I haven't had the pilot blow out (that I know of) & took her about 3,000 miles this winter and 2,000 miles last winter with no issues with the fridge.

As far as the stove vent.....it doesn't exist. I agonized about putting one in, but as some really smart people on this forum pointed out, the space is so small (even in a Globe Trotter), all you have to do is open the window & the fan in the roof & you basically have an exhaust fan.

Swimhard,
I would start with getting rid of the belly pan area. 1 it's the nastiest part I found, so just get it over with, 2 you can get a good look at if you need to replace some things, or more than you originally thought ( maybe plumbing and/or wiring).
Also get a good look at removing the rivets and not just clear cutting everything out, that way when putting in the new belly pan you will be able to line up to something.
Also, take ALOT of pictures, document, document document....
This way you don't forget how to go back.

I just cut everything out, and now I have to fab and scab back to the old area to make it fit. I'll get it, but a little more work.

I kinda just did the nasty first... Belly Pan, then interior, then insulation between outer and inner skins, and dumped everything.
Now that it's clear I have a blank slate to work with.

I'll been starting from the Top down after that. Working on all my leaks.
Once I get all my roof vents in, and leaks sealed I will then, and only then work on the floor. No reason working on the floor until I have all leaks repaired, otherwise it will ruin my new floor.

From there you just have to take every project in it's logical order....
Based on $, time, and tools available.

Make sense?

TIMK
